4/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Light but opaque copper brown pour into my large Watou St. Bernardus Glass that yields a 2-finger thick rocky head which quickly recedes into a coffee-like lacing. (4)

S - Fairly light on the nose but I do pick up dark fruits, malts and caramel; spices were definitely present as well. (4)

T - Light sweetness with dark fruits; mainly raisins and apples. Caramel malts sneak in silently towards the finish which was just lightly dabbed with citrusy, hoppy bitterness. Dark fruits return, lingering on in the after taste. Overall, the taste felt slightly watered down. (4)

M - Light to medium-bodied and modestly carbonated with a watery texture and general watery feel and smoothness (4)

D - Very easy drinking beer though the watery style was not too "for me"; interesting citrus hoppiness which I do not think is common in dubbels or Belgian dark brews. A good beer albeit not great; I would prefer the Prior 8. (4)

3.21/5  rDev -21.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pater 6 pours a cloudy amber color with no head. There is a very dry and very sweet aroma, with some dry grape almost wine like notes. The taste is dry and very very sweet, with some grape notes, and has a wine like flavor. The flavors are good and strong, but very flat feel. Overall its nice, but very very sweet, and too sweet for me.

Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle dated 14 03 16 at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fresh bread which gives away to a heavy malt odor
Head average (4.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring with center island
Lacing poor – a few irregular islands which slide back down to the ring.
Body dark brown, hazy from yeast from the pour
Flavor starts with heavy brown sugar and over-ripe date sweetness which slowly fades to an unpleasant sourness
Palate full, syrupy, lively carbonation

This tasted pretty decadent until the terminal sourness rolled in. After that, it was a literal bad taste in the mouth.
